Then, I saw this woman talking to a wall. It was a granite wall between Eataly and its nearby wine shop. The only surprise — she seemed pretty happy to be going at it.

I wondered if I was missing something. Was she a rock climber? An urban geologist? An architect admiring the building material?

Here’s what the Urban Dictionary says…

Talking without receiving any kind of reaction or response from the person you’re speaking to; Or talking to someone and they react or respond as if you never said what you just said to them.

“I poured my heart out to her and she just stared at me with a blank expression on her face. It was like talking to a wall!”
